Ethics in Research and Innovation

Friday, 6 July 2018, 2 – 4pm

Ethics in Research and Innovation

As digital technologies play a larger and larger role in our everyday lives, the ethics of their application becomes increasing to the fore of public perceptions. However, the development of robust ethical practice that can be applied to the ever-accelerating research and innovation (R&I) processes underpinning new digital technologies remains a challenge. While governments are moving towards improving protection of individual data privacy, e.g. through the EU introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation, private bodies and public organisations are struggling to establish robust ethical principles that can keep pace the accelerating rate of change in digital technologies.
